  • Adverse effects of statin therapy: perception vs. the evidence – focus
           on glucose homeostasis, cognitive, renal and hepatic function,
           haemorrhagic stroke and cataract
    • Authors: Mach F; Ray K, Wiklund O, et al.
      Pages: 2526 - 2539
      Abstract: AimsTo objectively appraise evidence for possible adverse effects of long-term statin therapy on glucose homeostasis, cognitive, renal and hepatic function, and risk for haemorrhagic stroke or cataract.Methods and resultsA literature search covering 2000–2017 was performed. The Panel critically appraised the data and agreed by consensus on the categorization of reported adverse effects. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and genetic studies show that statin therapy is associated with a modest increase in the risk of new-onset diabetes mellitus (about one per thousand patient-years), generally defined by laboratory findings (glycated haemoglobin ≥6.5); this risk is significantly higher in the metabolic syndrome or prediabetes. Statin treatment does not adversely affect cognitive function, even at very low levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and is not associated with clinically significant deterioration of renal function, or development of cataract. Transient increases in liver enzymes occur in 0.5–2% of patients taking statins but are not clinically relevant; idiosyncratic liver injury due to statins is very rare and causality difficult to prove. The evidence base does not support an increased risk of haemorrhagic stroke in individuals without cerebrovascular disease; a small increase in risk was suggested by the Stroke Prevention by Aggressive Reduction of Cholesterol Levels study in subjects with prior stroke but has not been confirmed in the substantive evidence base of RCTs, cohort studies and case–control studies.ConclusionLong-term statin treatment is remarkably safe with a low risk of clinically relevant adverse effects as defined above; statin-associated muscle symptoms were discussed in a previous Consensus Statement. Importantly, the established cardiovascular benefits of statin therapy far outweigh the risk of adverse effects.

  • Visit-to-visit cholesterol variability correlates with coronary atheroma
           progression and clinical outcomes
    • Authors: Clark D; III, Nicholls S, St. John J, et al.
      Pages: 2551 - 2558
      Abstract: AimsUtilizing serial intravascular ultrasonography (IVUS), we aimed to exam the association of intra-individual lipid variability, coronary atheroma progression, and clinical outcomes.Methods and resultsWe performed a post hoc patient-level analysis of nine clinical trials involving 4976 patients with coronary artery disease who underwent serial coronary IVUS in the setting of a range of medical therapies. We assessed the associations between progression in percent atheroma volume (ΔPAV), clinical outcomes, and visit-to-visit lipid variability including low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), non-HDL-C, total cholesterol (TC)/HDL-C, and apolipoprotein B (ApoB). Variability of lipid parameters was measured using intra-individual standard deviation over 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24 months. Atherogenic lipoprotein variability significantly associated with ΔPAV [odds ratio (95% confidence interval; P-value), LDL-C: 1.09 (1.02, 1.17, P = 0.01); non-HDL-C: 1.10 (1.02, 1.18, P = 0.01); TC/HDL-C: 1.14 (1.06, 1.24, P = 0.001); ApoB: 1.13 (1.03, 1.24, P = 0.01)]. Survival curves revealed significant stepwise relationships between cumulative major adverse cardiovascular events and increasing quartiles of atherogenic lipoprotein variability at 24-months follow-up (log-rank P < 0.01 for all lipoproteins except HDL-C). Stronger associations were noted between achieved lipoprotein levels and ΔPAV [LDL-C: 1.27 (1.17, 1.39; P < 0.001); non-HDL-C: 1.32 (1.21, 1.45; P < 0.001); TC/HDL-C: 1.31 (1.19, 1.45; P < 0.001); ApoB: 1.20 (1.07, 1.35; P = 0.003)].ConclusionGreater visit-to-visit variability in atherogenic lipoprotein levels significantly associates with coronary atheroma progression and clinical outcomes, although the association between achieved atherogenic lipoproteins and atheroma progression appears stronger. These data highlight the importance of achieving low and consistent atherogenic lipoprotein levels to promote plaque regression and improve clinical outcomes.

  • Susceptibility of low-density lipoprotein particles to aggregate depends
           on particle lipidome, is modifiable, and associates with future
           cardiovascular deaths
    • Authors: Ruuth M; Nguyen S, Vihervaara T, et al.
      Pages: 2562 - 2573
      Abstract: AimsLow-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles cause atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) through their retention, modification, and accumulation within the arterial intima. High plasma concentrations of LDL drive this disease, but LDL quality may also contribute. Here, we focused on the intrinsic propensity of LDL to aggregate upon modification. We examined whether inter-individual differences in this quality are linked with LDL lipid composition and coronary artery disease (CAD) death, and basic mechanisms for plaque growth and destabilization.Methods and resultsWe developed a novel, reproducible method to assess the susceptibility of LDL particles to aggregate during lipolysis induced ex vivo by human recombinant secretory sphingomyelinase. Among patients with an established CAD, we found that the presence of aggregation-prone LDL was predictive of future cardiovascular deaths, independently of conventional risk factors. Aggregation-prone LDL contained more sphingolipids and less phosphatidylcholines than did aggregation-resistant LDL. Three interventions in animal models to rationally alter LDL composition lowered its susceptibility to aggregate and slowed atherosclerosis. Similar compositional changes induced in humans by PCSK9 inhibition or healthy diet also lowered LDL aggregation susceptibility. Aggregated LDL in vitro activated macrophages and T cells, two key cell types involved in plaque progression and rupture.ConclusionOur results identify the susceptibility of LDL to aggregate as a novel measurable and modifiable factor in the progression of human ASCVD.

  • Controlled study of the effect of proprotein convertase subtilisin-kexin
           type 9 inhibition with evolocumab on lipoprotein(a) particle kinetics
    • Authors: Watts G; Chan D, Somaratne R, et al.
      Pages: 2577 - 2585
      Abstract: AimsLipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)], a low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particle covalently bound to apolipoprotein(a) [apo(a)], is a potentially potent heritable risk factor for cardiovascular disease. We investigated the mechanism whereby evolocumab, a monoclonal antibody against proprotein convertase subtilisin-kexin type 9 (PCSK9), lowers Lp(a).Methods and resultsWe studied the kinetics of Lp(a) particles in 63 healthy men, with plasma apo(a) concentration >5 nmol/L, participating in an 8-week factorial trial of the effects of evolocumab (420 mg every 2 weeks) and atorvastatin (80 mg daily) on lipoprotein metabolism. Lipoprotein(a)-apo(a) kinetics were studied using intravenous D3-leucine administration, mass spectrometry, and compartmental modelling; Lp(a)-apoB kinetics were also determined in 16 subjects randomly selected from the treatment groups. Evolocumab, but not atorvastatin, significantly decreased the plasma pool size of Lp(a)-apo(a) (−36%, P < 0.001 for main effect). As monotherapy, evolocumab significantly decreased the production of Lp(a)-apo(a) (−36%, P < 0.001). In contrast, in combination with atorvastatin, evolocumab significantly increased the fractional catabolism of Lp(a)-apo(a) (+59%, P < 0.001), but had no effect on the production of Lp(a)-apo(a). There was a highly significant association between the changes in the fractional catabolism of Lp(a)-apo(a) and Lp(a)-apoB in the substudy of 16 subjects (r = 0.966, P < 0.001).ConclusionsEvolocumab monotherapy lowered the plasma Lp(a) pool size by decreasing the production of Lp(a) particles. In combination with atorvastatin, evolocumab lowered the plasma Lp(a) pool size by accelerating the catabolism of Lp(a) particles. This dual mechanism may relate to an effect of PCSK9 inhibition on Lp(a)-apo(a) production and to marked up-regulation of LDL receptor activity on Lp(a) holoparticle clearance.Clinical Trial Registration InformationNCT02189837

  • Cardiovascular disease risk associated with elevated lipoprotein(a)
           attenuates at low low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels in a primary
           prevention setting
    • Authors: Verbeek R; Hoogeveen R, Langsted A, et al.
      Pages: 2589 - 2596
      Abstract: AimsLipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) elevation is a causal risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). It has however been suggested that elevated Lp(a) causes CVD mainly in individuals with high low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels. We hypothesized that the risk associated with high Lp(a) levels would largely be attenuated at low LDL-C levels.Methods and resultsIn 16 654 individuals from the EPIC-Norfolk prospective population study, and in 9448 individuals from the Copenhagen City Heart Study (CCHS) parallel statistical analyses were performed. Individuals were categorized according to their Lp(a) and LDL-C levels. Cut-offs were set at the 80th cohort percentile for Lp(a). Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol cut-offs were set at 2.5, 3.5, 4.5, and 5.5 mmol/L. Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels in the primary analyses were corrected for Lp(a)-derived LDL-C (LDL-Ccorr). Multivariable-adjusted hazard ratios were calculated for each category. The category with LDL-Ccorr <2.5 mmol/L and Lp(a) <80th cohort percentile was used as reference category. In the EPIC-Norfolk and CCHS cohorts, individuals with an Lp(a) ≥80th percentile were at increased CVD risk compared with those with Lp(a) <80th percentile for any LDL-Ccorr levels ≥2.5 mmol/L. In contrast, for LDL-Ccorr <2.5 mmol/L, the risk associated with elevated Lp(a) attenuated. However, there was no interaction between LDL-Ccorr and Lp(a) levels on CVD risk in either cohort.ConclusionLipoprotein(a) and LDL-C are independently associated with CVD risk. At LDL-C levels below <2.5 mmol/L, the risk associated with elevated Lp(a) attenuates in a primary prevention setting.

      Pages: 2603 - 2603
      Abstract: A 24-year-old woman patient presented with an 18-month history of fatigue, weight loss, transient exanthema, fever, and occasional palpitations. Dyspnoea, orthopnoea, and chest pain were denied. Clinical examination revealed tachycardia with a heart rate up to 122 b.p.m. Chest X-ray showed left-sided pleural effusion. Laboratory examination indicated increased acute-phase reactants (erythrocyte sedimentation rate 102 mm/h, c-reactive protein 65 mg/dL), normal cardiac biomarkers, and negative rheumatologic antibodies (ANCA, ANA, and rheumatoid factor). Magnetic resonance (MR) angiography revealed multiple renovisceral aneurysms. Based on these findings the patient was diagnosed with polyarteritis nodosa (PAN).

  • Superior and inferior vena cava obstruction: an unusual presentation of a

    • Authors: Kogoj P; Zbačnik R, Dolenc-Stražar Z, et al.
      Pages: 2604 - 2604
      Abstract: A 21-year-old female patient without known diseases presented with 2 weeks history of dyspnoea and generalized oedema. At the admission, she had lower extremity oedema, neck and face swelling, bilateral jugular vein distention, pleural effusion, and ascites. Electrocardiogram showed sinus tachycardia with inverted T-waves in precordial leads V1–V3. Transthoracic echocardiogram demonstrated an 7.4 × 4.9 cm echogenic mass almost completely filling the right atrium and protruding thought tricuspid valve into the right ventricle in diastole (Panel A; Supplementary material onlineSupplementary material online, Videos S1 and S2). Additionally, moderate pericardial effusion was presented. Cardiac computed tomography (CT) confirmed an 8 × 5 cm mass in right atrium with invasion into interatrial septum, right atrial posterolateral wall, left atrial roof, right superior pulmonary vein, and surrounding aortic root (Panels B and D). The tumour infiltrated and nearly obliterated both superior and inferior vena cava (Panels D and E; Supplementary material onlineSupplementary material online, Video S3). Computed tomography pulmonary angiogram did not show any evidence of pulmonary emboli, also abdominal CT gave no additional information. Due to signs of significant vena cava syndrome, urgent cardiac surgery was performed with the resection of the tumour (Panel C) and reconstruction of the right atrium and superior and inferior vena cava. Histopathological examination of the mass revealed an intimal sarcoma. FISH analysis showed amplification of MDM2 (Panel F).
